no idea. i have absolutely no idea why. i'm surprised jim lehrer didn't ask about it. i was surprised romney didn't affirmatively try to defuse it himself. i was surprised that obama didn't bring it up. biggest surprise for me of the night is that it didn't come up. it's been the dominant thing in our debate for the last few weeks. >> david axelrod is coming up. jon meacham, you look over the past 25 years, 30 years or so, and you look at the republican presidential candidates who all have strengths, they've all been remarkable men in their own way, but not good debaters. you know, republicans have held our breath through the john mccain debates and the george w. bush debates and the bob dole debates and the george h.w. debates. again, a great man, a horrific debater. you know, the famous jon lovitz line, "i can't believe i'm losing to this guy." playing michael dukakis. you really do have to go back to ronald reagan to find a republican that was in command during a presidential debate. and i predict that's going to excite the republican base in a way it hasn't been excited in a very

lothian, reporting live from denver this morning. >>> perhaps the bigger loser last night was jim lehrer. the reviews are in and they're not good. some say he blew it, the worst moderator ever. bill keller called lehrer road kill. he could not even level an attack directed at his own network. >> i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i like pbs, big bird. i actually like you, too, but i'm not going to keep spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> cnn political analyst and editorial director of the national journal. hi, ron. >> good morning, carol. >> i know it's not the most important issue of the night. plenty of people actually think lehrer helped mitt romney by allowing him so much time to answer questions. fair? >> i don't know. he has been an important force in presidential debates. last night was not a good night for him. the new format has a lot of strength, allows you to drill down on a subject, providing sustained focus on one area at a time. and he simply did not take advantage of it. he didn't have meaningful follow-ups. he didn't challenge them. he
. >> jim, i still have 30 seconds. >> i still need to keep -- >> na-na-na. >> i think that's a little -- >> i think it's a little weird you're here still. you can just leave and do whatever you want. >> i'm the moderator here. >> jim, i'm going to have to ask you to stop talking. >> oh -- >> yeah -- >> oh -- >> you're a useless human being. >> tonight, jimmy welcomes katie couric. that's "late night with jimmy fallon" weeknights at 12:35. i have to watch that entire clip all the way through. >>> all right. entertainment news. let's check it out. despite negative reviews, liam neeson's thriller "taken 2" is expected to take. top spot. tim burton's stop-motion animation "frankenweenie" is expected to take in about $17 million.

say infamy is a better word. >> most officials in any sport trying to be anonymous. this morning, jim axelrod is about to change all that. good morning. >> good morning. in all, there were 135 replacement officials hired by the nfl, all with years of experience at the college and high school level. now, we sat down with jerry hughes, who like all the others, had jumped at the chance to live his referee's dream. finally, everything's back to normal. the regular referees are on the field. the distractions of replacement refs are gone. and everyone seems happy. well, almost everyone. >> a little sad right now. >> reporter: not jerry hughes. one of those replacement refs who have now themselves been replaced. >> one more week, if for no other reason, to say goodbye to the crew. >> you got close with these guys? >> we were close. >> close, perhaps, in the way that soldiers share a fox hole are close. because for these replacement refs, it seems like everyone was against them. >> the one day you're working at the foot locker, the next day you're in the n.l. >> reporter: you all became sort
's why former secretary of defense and former energy secretary of the carter administration, jim schlesinger, in an open letter to "time" magazine asked governor dukakis, are you viscerally anti-military? jim schlesinger never got an answer. and the reason he did is because the governor of massachusetts doesn't want to answer former secretary jim schlesinger on that very important question. >> senator bentsen, i'd like to ask you about your -- >> tom, a last question for senator quayle. >> senator quayle, all of us in our lifetime encounter an experience that helps shape our adult philosophy in some form or another. could you describe for this audience tonight what experience you may have had and how it shaped our political philosophy? 4 -- >> there are a lot of sperpses that i have had that have shaped my adult philosophy, but the one i keep coming back to time and time again, and i talk about it at commencement addresses, i talk about it in high schools. i talk about it when i visit the job training centers. it is the advice my maternal grandmother, martha pulliam, who is 97 ye
's a big one. coming up next, jim vandehei with the top stories from the politico playbook. and eugene robinson, chuck todd, david faber, and calista gingrich joins us onset. but first, bill karins with a check on the forecast. >> getting out the door this morning, umbrellas needed many areas of the east coast. let me take you up the sea board. we are watching rain this morning moving up in south florida. in miami, dry right now, but you will have heavier rain two or three hours from now. tampa, showers trying to move on to the coastline. also the ft. myers area. we have numerous areas of rain in the carolinas, especially the mountainous areas, asheville to greenville. and some heavier rains moving up through eastern north carolina. washington, d.c., right in the middle right to your screen there. so far, you've been pretty dry. you do have rain to your north, though, up through maryland, and further to the north, also, numerous areas of rain from pittsburgh to state college through harrisburg. eventually this will work its way into new york state and new jersey, but not until later to
's proposed held up in congress. now the challenge here is the moderator will push both candidates. jim lair is a good moderator. he's very balanced, and i don't think he'll let them answer the questions they want. he's going to have to do that. at the same time, the challenge for president obama is not simply get bogged down in the details of his answer, but to then spin around and frame his answer as an attack, if you will, on governor romney and his lack of specifics and an agenda. you have to weave and bob at the same time. that's what a good debater does. >> let me bring in anne. is this a good strategy. you say you promised you would create 1 million new manufacturing jobs and hiring 100,000 math and science teachers and he talked about the jobs bill blokd by republicans and transportation bill blocked by republicans. is that the follow-up? how do you break this fever if it exists to a second term? >> i think chris is right. i think he has to do that to a certain extent. we saw the idea of running against congress work well in the past. congress has a lower approval rating than the pre
the white house a little bit harder. here's cnn's jim acosta to look at how the republican is spinning the new unemployment rate. >> reporter: campaigning in virginia coal country, mitt romney tried to dig through the latest jobs numbers to make the case president obama has not hit pay dirt just yet. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate as you noted this year has come down very, very slowly but it's come down nonetheless. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> reporter: still, one of romney's key metrics on the president's handling of the economy went up in smoke when the nation's unemployment rate dipped below 8%. >> 8% unemployment for over how many, 43 months? we still have unemployment above 8%. he told us he would get us back to work and hold unemployment below 8%. unemployment above 8% month after month after month. >> reporter: it's a political bar romney has repeatedly accused the president of failing to clear for months. a threshold t
of the problem with seats coming loose. abc's jim avila reports. >> reporter: boston's logan field, one of american's boeing 757s, 47 of which nearly the half the fleet taken out of service as the troubled airline tries to make sure no more of its coach seats come loose in flight, as they have three separate times. >> our seats, 14 abc i think are totally disconnected. >> somehow in the installation process of our seats we introduced a failure. not sure mechanical failure or human failure. >> reporter: american saying it identified what caused three flights to be aborted in mid flight because seats came loose. in one case, flipping passengers on their backs. the seats came in rows of three. and the row is held to the floor with what is called a saddle clamp. it is that clamp that was improperly installed on the planes where the seats disengaged. >> on the safety side of this particular situation, american is doing all that it can do to ensure that the seats are -- are being looked at and making sure they're installed as correctly as they're supposed to be. >> reporter: american says the
to know in his quarter century as the country's go to referee for the presidential debate. mr. jim lehrer the former anchor of pbs news hour has been seizing outreach by the suggestion that he was as safe and uninspired choice to moderate the first debate and he's offended by the reports that question whether the 12 presidential debate might bone too many. they say in this election living by a journalist doctrine of disengagement of reporter is never the story that has been harder than ever especially for those moderating debates. they go to because reassure the individual will be the moderators. we see martha raddatz but correspondent for abc news and will moderate the vice presidential debate and is the only moderator chosen who is not an anchor. candy crowley the host of the state of the union program on cnn will host one of the debates, and bob schiffer the cbs correspondent and a host of face the nation. tomorrow night they are hosting -- there are other stories in the people looking at the candidates and to do. "the chicago tribune" says the gop may hinge on the debate in showdown c
. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates do. but i will tell you that mitt romney has been behind closed doors for much of the day today, in deb
line all because of a couple of mitt romney lines. >> jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. stop other things. i like pbs, i love big bird, but i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> reporter: let the mockery begin. obama got bin laden. i'll get big bird. you tell that so and so romney anyone who bleeps with big bird bleeps with me. big bird even extended his middle finger at the candidate. >> and you're going to count on one that we all know and love. >> reporter: big bird started his own big bird parody account. reacted by crying and showed up in a deployment split screen. >> i like pbs. i like big bird. >> reporter: his reaction was a scream. >> not going to keep spending on money to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> aghh! >> reporter: his response included a message. >> f-u-m-i -- >> reporter: a message spilled out for myth. and this isn't the first time that mitt romney has stalked big bird. >> i like big bird and bert and ernie for my grandkids to like. >> reporter: o. >> he got rid of your jobs, now he wants t
of pinning him down. maybe he thought jim lehrer was going to do it. i say, no. take the man at his word. mitt romney wants us to suck up all the stuff he's throwing out. he's not clear. he's double talking. that's what he's doing. >> if you don't have a mandate for health care, which is what mitt romney and the republicans want, they don't want a mandate. but if people want to have health insurance, you can't sign up for something and never pay and then wonder why you get rejected because you don't do the payments. it's easier to talk about it in the length of a debate. let me remind you, in 2008, president obama ran when he was trying to get to the left of hillary clinton, and he opposed nafta. and as soon as that was gone, he never talked again about renegotiating nafta. we found out later he sent one of his top aides to -- >> one at a time, one at a time. let ari finish, please. >> both candidates have engaged in tactical maneuvering. this is nothing new. >> i'm not saying it's anything new and i'm not saying both candidates don't shift and move to the center after primaries and stuf
